I went to see this today and it was teh sex. Teh sex on a stick.

The only thing I didn't like was the body count. Oh man. Cyclops was seriously ripped off. But it was cool seeing new characters introduced too. And the Danger Room sequence. And Colossus and Kitty getting decent roles. And Jamie Madrox. But, no Nightcrawler?</lj-cut?

Yeah, no Kurt. I was bummed, too. Reports conflict over whether it's because Fox declined to rehire Alan Cumming, or he didn't want to deal with the make-up again.

I think the body count was partly to clear the deck for a cast of lesser known actors who couldn't command paychecks quite so high. And James Marsden cheesed Fox off by taking a job on Singer's Superman project while The Last Stand was in development limbo.

Ironically, I saw Alan Cumming on stage as Macheath in The Threepenny Opera the day before I saw X3.
